Microsoft Pushes Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 With Bug Fixes

Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200

Microsoft has announced the release of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 to the Canary Channel Insiders. The reference to .5001 after the build number is not relevant to Windows Insiders. Microsoft revealed that the Canary Channel will migrate to a higher build number.

The Window for switching to the Dev Channel without reinstallation of Windows automatically closes. You should switch the channels now before installing Build 26200. Microsoft will not release an SDK until further notice. The build watermark previously located at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop has appeared again.

The Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 has made improvements to the Widgets button on the Taskbar to enable clearer icons on the Taskbar. You can also expect animated icons as well. The developers will be able to send notifications to the Taskbar button with their own custom dashboards for the Widgets boards.

The Widgets are been enhanced with more granular control over the type of content that can be shown on the Taskbar button. You need to navigate to Widgets Settings | Notifications and enable/disable Taskbar notifications from individual dashboards. Microsoft has rolled out the changes in the European Economic Area.

The Energy Saver icon in the system tray is now available in the leaf icon for devices that are plugged in and those do not have batteries. The update has resolved an issue related to dead zone, page icons in quick settings, and keyboard focus. The flight has fixed a taptip.exe crash, RemoteApp scaling, and wallpaper.

Microsoft is aware that the Copilot automatically launches unexpectedly after restarting the PCs for Canary, Beta, and Dev channels. If you are facing issues with Windows Ink usage in Copilot, then the problem has been resolved.

You should note that Copilot in Windows (preview) is currently being rolled out in select global markets. The Copilot is available in North America, South America, United Kingdom, and parts of Asia. Microsoft will continue to add additional markets over time.
